12 oz bottle

A: Deep rusty red/brown under a medium to small tan head. Decent retention and lace.

S: Very noticeable bourbon and wood. A bit of a pine character as well. Some toasted, slightly chocolate malt mixed in.

T: Bourbon and wood apparent again. Bit of heat from the bourbon. Sweet throughout, slight bitterness. Hint of citrus hops as well. Toasted malt lingers in the finish.

M/D: Full bodied, a little creamy with a slight prick on the tongue from carbonation. Decent drinkability, a sipper but good enough to have a couple of.
